Summary

Frank has been in a serious car accident and he's missing memories--of the people around him, of the history they share, and of how he came to be in the crash. All he remembers is that he is a lawyer who specializes in fine print.*

Everyone keeps telling Frank that he was fine before the accident, "just a bit overwhelmed," but as he begins to reclaim his memories, they're at odds with what everyone is saying. His brother Oscar is intent on going into business with an inventively cruel corporation.** Alice, Frank's wife, has written a book called Executive X that makes Frank furious, though he isnít sure why. And to make matters even stranger, stored in a closet is a severed finger floating in an old mustard jar that makes him feel very, very proud.

As more memories flood in, Frank's tightly regulated life begins to unspool as he is forced to face up to the real terms*** and the condition of his life.**** Robert Glancyís debut novel is a shrewd and hilarious exploration of freedom and frustration, success and second chances, and whether itís worth living by the rules.

* Yes, exactly like this.

** We can't tell you what it's called for legal reasons, but believe us, it's evil.

*** Which are rarely in his favor.

**** Which is a total mess.
